I think Baylor is a much likelier 1 seed out of the B12. Texas is not one of the top seven teams imho.I'm pretty surprised. Thought the Horns were going to lose to Baylor in Waco, but not to ISU.
Texas has some tough games ahead. If they manage to win the Big XII, I think they still get a #1 seed. I'm not counting on that, though- not with @WVU, Baylor x2, and Oklahoma coming up, along with the B12 tourney.
That has always been the tendency in the B12, which is why the conference is always a real fun one to watch. So many surprises. But even though OK St. was around a 12 point favorite against TCU, they've played one of the worst schedules of any team in the country and still managed to chalk up 3 losses with no wins over a top 50 team. Seem like a lot of smoke, and the mirror showed them that they aren't that good tonight.OK St also lost (to TCU) - are we back to the old Big 12 where top teams struggle on the road against conference foes? Baylor broke that tendency for a few years, but ...
I was going to ask the opposite question. Who will get Texas' first place vote(s) now, us or South Carolina?The Horns lost a close game to a top 65 team on the road, so that's got to earn them a few more #1 rankings from the learned pollsters in the polls next week.
Mississippi St. is undefeated and has far more wins at 18 than any other team, so even though they've played a puffy schedule, they do have 4 wins over top 50 teams and the Bulldogs would be a safe place to park those ex-Texas #1 votes. Or if you want to stay in Texas, give them to once-defeated Baylor.I was going to ask the opposite question. Who will get Texas' first place vote(s) now, us or South Carolina?
